What is Micro Fat grafting?
This is a method that extracts unnecessary fat from abdomen, thighs, buttocks and other areas and pull out pure fat through centrifuge and then injects that pure fat into face. A fat injection at WONJIN can improve the overall dimension of the face which amplifies anti aging to give you a younger looking face.

Micro fat grafting

Micro fat grafting at WONJIN uses injection to transplant trace amounts of fat evenly for accuracy and a higher rate of transplant. The fat is extracted from the abdomen or thighs, a process effective for body contouring as well. Because it is injected, general anesthesia and incision is not necessary.

Type Micro fat grafting Regular fat grafting
Structure Many layers One layer
Period Semi permanent 1~3 years
Effect Youthful and pretty face Swollen and unnatural face
Features A natural effect after the first treatment Unnatural results can occur if too much fat is grafted

Fat grafting

Lipokit fat grafting
Equipment that can perform liposuction and centrifugation is used to extract fat and purify it, allowing minimal possibility for infection. It removes free oil, responsible for the survivability of the fat, which allows cohesive fat grafting.
Stem cell fat grafting
This is a complex procedure using concentrated pure growth factors that were extracted from fat tissues and purified to amplify engraftment rate of fat cells. This is suitable for people who don’t have enough time as it requires only few hours for recovery.

Smart stem cell fat grafting

Smart system fat grafting reduces the chance for failed fat transplant by extracting unnecessary fat and separating the clean fat cells. These cells are further separated into healthy cells to transplant them on the necessary area. The fat and stem cells are combined leading to an increased rate of transplant and effects, resulting in skin regeneration and younger looking skin.

Advantages of smart stem cell fat grafting
  • 1. Expect semi permanent anti aging effect with 1 procedure.
  • 2. Young and healthy fat cells are used for higher rate of transplant.
  • 3. Almost no rate of infection due to use to one’s own tissue.
  • 4. Removal of wrinkles, improved tightness, and clear skin tone.
  • 5. Pore tightening, improvement of acne scars and skin troubles.
  • 6. Almost no swelling or scarring.

** Stem Cell:
A human body has 200 different kinds of cells numbering up to 60 trillion. Most cells are in bones, nerves, and muscles, but cells with the special ability to become different cells are called stem cells.

Stem cell used in smart stem cell fat grafting

Smart system fat grafting includes stem cells which does not cause DNA disfiguration, and the transplanted fat receive nutrition so that the surrounding tissue helps growth, resulting in elasticity and wrinkle refinement.

Smart stem cell fat grafting process

Smart system fat grafting extracts fat from the abdomen or thighs and uses lipokit equipment to extract natural fat without exposure to air. After extraction of stem cells, it is mixed and grafted onto designed area.

Liposuction(using lipokit) → Separate fat(lipokit centrifuge) → Extract natural fat → Extract stem cell(from blood) → Stem cell + natural fat(combination) → Stem cell+natural fattransplant Fat tissue for transplant → Extract natural fat + Blood sample → Extract stem cell
